Doll in Sack Back Dress

c 1760

The sack, or saque, back dress was the most commonly worn dress throughout the 18th century. It evolved from a negligee, with large pleats flowing from the shoulders, using the entire width of the fabric. It was worn over a wide petticoat, often of the same fabric, and highly decorated with frills and other trimmings.
